Hi, i have a very old laptop made by advent , its called a 7047. It is meant to have an in-built wlan card made by prism although it doesnt work, the only reason im on the internet is because im using a belkin wireless networking stick. Is there anyway of using the in-built card? drivers? software? thanks

Your laptop probably had the OS relaoded and now it doesn't have the device driver needed to recognize your wlan card.

The site http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/7047.htm has good information on your laptop and which includes the following information on obtaining drivers and enabling the wland. Good Luck

If by WLAN not work you mean its totaly off then the chip burned out and you should send it ini to your computer maker for repairs. If its not then you should remove and reinstall the latest wifi drivers. (save old ones first) also make sure its not your WLAN Modem

Acer 1691wlmi 4-in-1 card reader wont' work


Hi Traveler,

let me help you with this, but first...

Is it a USB Card Reader?

has it worked before on any other pc that you know of?

when you plug it into your computer does windows detect it?have you been able to install it?

If it doesnt detect it does the card reader itself have a power switch?

is there a light on the card reader? if so does it come on?


thanks in advance for answering my questions. I'm here to help.

I have an Advent cordless mouse ADE-EMB1 which has suddenly stopped working although it is detected by my laptop.


Try putting brand new batteries in it, if this does not work, you should just buy a new one. When the batteries get weak they can make the mouse start acting strange.

Advent 4211-b problem with built in webcam not working


Go to the device manager. You will see a section called Imaging devices. Click on the plus sign. if any device is listed uninstall it and then restart your computer. The drivers will get installed automatically or you need to use the driver CD to reinstall the same. Once installed use any software like Cyberlink Youcam or any other software provided to you by your vendor. make sure the input device selected is the required webcam.

I'm trying to set up my Mom's new Gateway laptop to her new Netgear router through a ewire modem, so she can use her computer anywear in her house. We ordered the net gear pc card and it does not fit...


If the notebook is new (less than two years old) then it almost 100% most definitely absolutely has built-in wireless.

The card doesn't fit since it is a PC card and new notebooks use ExpressCards instead.

Replacing video card


hmmm..old card should just remove with one screw along back panel, unless it's the embedded version

go to control panel, system, device manager, and let me know what it says under audio devices.
